Are you ready to ride along with Waymo? They are the latest in the self driving car tend. Available in Arizona, this car will pick you up and drop you off using a phone app (video link).

While this may eliminate uncomfortable conversations with the driver or the risk that comes with climbing in a car with a stranger, are we really ready to fully trust AI with getting us to our destination?

The self driving car has existed for quite some time, although mostly under the radar. People discussed the possibility of using them as taxi’s or even just for personal use. However, those ideas are coming to fruitation now. Whether we are ready or not, it is here. The next time we order a car for a ride, we may not have an actual driver behind the wheel.
